5 Fact Friday - The RV Adventure

Here we go again...another 5 Fact Friday blogger 'party'!

5 Facts about our crazy RV adventure this past week...

1) We had never been in an RV before. We'd never even been camping before!

2) The RV trip was an adventure!

3) The 'Good' parts of the adventure far outweighed the bad. The kids, especially our 10 year old loved it...Everything tastes great when cooked on a hibachi or campfire...We snuck away from the RV for a fabulous dinner out and some time at a wonderful Napa winery pool...RV people are very nice.


4) The 'Bad' parts are really yucky. RV parks are strange...Our Cruise America rental was really yucky...made-my-skin-crawl-yucky...The sewage hook-ups - ugh!..Our RV broke down...3 times...On the highway...In the end, it couldn't be fixed and we drove home a day early (thankfully I'd followed along in our car).


5) Surprisingly, I'd do it again! We learned a lot, so I'd change some things. First, I need a nice trailer. I've been eyeing cute vintage trailers on the internet. Look at my Pinterest board. You'll want one, too!

Have you been on RV (or trailer) trip? Do you have an RV? Would I be crazy to get a cute little trailer?

Just last night I was browsing "Glampers" on pintrest!! Oh my! The things one can do with one. We have an old pop-up that we've only used in the backyard. We set it up by the pool to feel luxurious. I'm thinking of decorating it shabby chic instead of it's current 1970's harvest gold plaid! Your camping trip sounded like quite an adventure!!

Hi Becky,
Loved following your trip on Instagram and I loved reading about it here too :)
We have never done camping with an RV before but it is definitely on our list.. I'll probably consult you if we ever go that route :)

That was some crazy adventure, indeed. :) When you pull into an RV park, Becky; park close to a source of water that will enable you to refill your on-board tanks. It's better to bring along someone who knows how to fill board tanks so you won't have to ask for help from a stranger.
